This tag incorporates several Challenges – which is always fun for me! Watercoloring is not something I do very often, probably because I need a lot more practice! This attempt was based on the technique in Tim Holtz's Compendium of Curiosities III.
The main image is from TH Classics #1 Stamp Set. It was stamped on Watercolor Cardstock using Archival Black Ink and colored using Distress Markers and Brushes. The edges of the paper were sponged with Pumice Stone Distress Ink and Vintage Photo Distress Ink. It was then adhere to the tag using Stampin' Dimensionals.
The Crinkle Ribbon was dyed using Distress Inks - Vintage Photo, Peacock Feathers and Scattered Straw. The Pediments Die was cut from an old sponged tag (that was too ugly to use, LOL!) and attached to the back of the tag.
Chit Chat Stickers were sponged with Black Soot Distress Ink and adhered to the project with a Tiny Attacher. A button from Accoutrements was attached using Glue Dots. An Idea-ology Mini Corner was attached to the bottom of the tag.
